Makeup Haul: Okinawa, Japan

I love the cover picture of this post! Nice right!!! :D

When I think of Japan, I think mad crazy colorful stuff with hiragana (Japanese characters) splattered all over the place. I think that’s what makes Japanese fashion magazine so fun to read – the characters are just there for decoration and you really focus on the apparel, accessories, makeup, etc. Taiwanese magazines follow that style rather closely, but I can read Chinese so I end up spending time trying to read the traditional Chinese characters and that takes away half the fun. Lol.

Okinawa was advertised as ‘Hawaii of the East’ by the radio station that I listen to and joined the tour group, hence the tropical feel. You can read about my awesome Okinawa trip here!

Did you manage to spot these in the first picture? You’re really sharp if you did! *clap clap whistle whistle

Makeup Haul: Real Techniques, Monistat, NYC, Milani, Prestige, Essence of Beauty

Alright, just because they are not available in Singapore does not mean I HAVE TO buy them.

But so many blogs I follow are people from the US and they go on and on about how good these ‘drugstore’ products are. I put drugstore between inverted commas because by the time they reach my hands, after the exchange rate set by the spree-er + shipping + delivery + handling fee, the prices are not very drugstore at all.
